Colombia: Infantino vows to improve FIFA's image during Latin American trip

FIFA President Gianni Infantino promised to focus on the future and learn from the mistakes of the past and improve the image of FIFA, during a press conference from Bogota, Friday, on his first trip to Latin America as acting FIFA President.
During the joint press conference alongside the President of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) Alejandro Dominguez and the President of the Colombian Football Federation (FCF) Ramon Jasurun, Infantino said that "if it was easy I think I would not be here today as president of FIFA, but I do not think it will be difficult," adding that "we have some very nice statutes but they are useless if not implemented in practice."
The FIFA President added that "FIFA does not have to save the world, FIFA has to organise football and to give a bit of joy and passion to the people, that is our role." Infantino went on to say that "we're going to show it with work, we're going to show it with it with projects, with reforms," adding that "we will work and we will show it by putting football on the table, with specific projects in each country, that they have to trust us, and we'll improve the image of the FIFA."
